Hyundai Construction Equipment to offer Trimble LOADRITE L3180 SmartScale
with Weighing Intelligence to Optimize Loadout, Track Productivity and Prevent Overloading
SUNNYVALE, Calif. and SEOUL, South Korea, March 10, 2020—Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) and Hyundai Construction Equipment (KRX: 267270) announced today the availability of Trimble® LOADRITE® L3180 SmartScale as an option on Hyundai Wheel Loaders across the European Union.
The LOADRITE L3180 SmartScale uses weighing intelligence and solid state sensors for more accurate, precise and faster loading. It also connects machines and devices for the collection and syncing of data via the built-in WiFi to InsightHQ™ reporting portal. InsightHQ consolidates live, operational information from Trimble LOADRITE devices on loaders, excavators and conveyors across the site, to provide near real-time productivity and performance reports for extraction, processing and load-out operations.
Reengineered from the ground up, Trimble’s innovative, next-generation loader scale platform features smarter weighing, smarter data management and a smarter interface. Intelligence in the weighing software and new hardware gives operators of all skill levels the ability to load faster and more productively than ever before.
“Payload measurement is a great way to ensure every truck load is optimized,” said Kevin Garcia, general manager of Trimble Civil Specialty Solutions. “Trimble LOADRITE onboard weighing technology on Hyundai loaders enables our customers to maximize productivity and efficiency on every bucket loaded.”
The LOADRITE L3180 offers more precise weighing than any previous LOADRITE system in a wide range of conditions including adjusting for rough terrain, operator technique and machine movement using new weighing intelligence. The system also features digital CAN-bus sensors for noise immunity and ground slope compensation as standard.
Smarter Data Management
The L3180 now offers in-cab key performance indicators (KPIs), including ton/hour, tons and truck count to enable operators to monitor performance and achieve daily targets. When using Trimble’s cloud-based InsightHQ quarry reporting portal, personnel can gain access to site production and operator performance KPIs on desktop or mobile devices. Data is presented in dashboard or graphical formats, including a new loadout performance heatmap, powered by built-in GPS. The system caches data locally and then syncs it with InsightHQ.
The L3180 features a 5.7″ touchscreen display, which is twice the size of previous generation displays. Colorful graphics, cleaner interface design and the new touchscreen allow for faster menu navigation and interaction. New loading information detail, including customer and product for each job, can be customized on the interface by each operator to match their workflow and make it easier to see the right information for maximum productivity.
The Trimble LOADRITE L3180 SmartScale is available now as an option from Hyundai Construction Equipment dealers across Europe. To locate a nearby dealer, visit: www.hyundai-ce.eu/en/dealer-locator. LOADRITE scales are installed and supported by local LOADRITE dealers.
